Pickup Hoops - 'Is that a basketball court in your pickup truck, or are you just glad to see me?'

General

The former.

Setup1

Jason Parr and Jonathan P. VarnHagen received U.S. Patent No. 6,019,690 on February 1, 2000, for their clever folding basketball rim and backboard.

Setup2

It's a complete basketball goal assembly that you can throw in the back of your truck, then drive around town with until you find some likely players who've got game.

Setup3

Sets up and folds down in minutes.

Setup4

Standard rim with breakaway feature, and the rim height's adjustable from 6 feet up to the regulation 10.

Setup5

Dave Barry featured it in his annual Christmas special column, and noted that "if you get stuck in traffic, you can set this thing up right there on the highway and shoot some hoops, thus turning wasted time into a fun and healthy workout, at least until traffic starts moving again and the motorists behind you deliberately run you over."

Setup6

$975 here.
